Southern California-based law firm Tredway Lumsdaine & Doyle LLP has partnered with Working Wardrobes to launch “Law Suits & Legal Briefs”, an effort to strengthen support of attorneys and other professionals in aiding men and women seeking to re-enter the workforce and attain self-sufficiency.
Tredway Lumsdaine & Doyle (TLD) sponsored and hosted a Success Event at Working Wardrobes in Costa Mesa on Tuesday, June 5.
“This so-important initiative has captured the imagination of the entire Tredway Lumsdaine & Doyle team across all four offices and I’m thrilled to see the enthusiasm exhibited as we have gathered suits and signed up many volunteers to help on June 5,” said Daniel Gold, a managing partner at TLD.
During the Success Event, around 40 TLD attorney and administrative staff volunteers worked with clients of Working Wardrobes to select a “law suit” most suitable for their future work endeavors. Twenty individuals were selected from the Phoenix House, a nonprofit rehabilitation center for former abusers of drugs and alcohol, to attend the event. Career advice and personal grooming services were also available to attendees to help boost confidence.
TLD and Working Wardrobes will be accepting men’s and women’s slightly used business suits and accessories along with allowed access to the purchasing of new underwear for clients of Working Wardrobes. Donations can be sent to any of the four TLD offices in Long Beach, Downey, Irvine and Beverly Hills through the end of July.
“Law Suits & Legal Briefs” is running along side the Eleventh Annual Statewide Suit Drive sponsored by Working Wardrobe’s supporter, Men’s Wearhouse. Donations will be accepted at all Men’s Wearhouse locations in California, and donors will receive 50 percent off regular priced items in the store as a thanks for their contribution. Suits donated in Southern California will be sent directly to Working Wardrobes.
“Working Wardrobes hopes ‘Law Suits & Legal Briefs’ will catch on at other law firms in Southern California because the need for professional wardrobes for our clients, and for funding, is so great and even more pronounced given today’s economy,” said Jerri Rosen, CEO of Working Wardrobes. “We are so very pleased to have Tredway Lumsdaine & Doyle onboard, as the firm’s efforts, including its compassion for our clients, go deeper than just corporate social responsibility. We look forward to enjoying a long-term relationship with a firm that genuinely cares about its community, and we encourage others to join the cause.”
